    I'm completing secondaries (very early), and one requires me to write an essay on my research experiences. Do you think it is appropriate to include the name of who you worked with (PI and such) in addition to the institution or would that be considered pompous name-dropping? :scared:

    i don't think there's anything wrong with writing the name of your PI. I did it... just don't make that the focus of your essay. I only mentioned her name once and I elaborated on what I did specifically and what i learned, etc. good luck!:luck:
